The following news should come as no surprise but Eminem’s The Marshall Mathers LP 2 has been certified platinum by the RIAA just two weeks after its release.
After last week’s hefty debut of 792K, the climb to the platinum mountain was a relatively small one but Shady & Co. still put up solid numbers with 210,000, reports Billboard.
The certification makes for the second plaque bestowed on the album. “Berzerk” which served as the first single and garnered attention for its old-school production courtesy of Rick Rubin, was also certified platinum.
Eminem covers Rolling Stone where the rapper divulged on a variety of topics.
